Where is the blower motor resistor located at?

Where is the blower motor resistor located at?

It’s located inside the dash, often on the opposite side of the steering wheel or inside the engine compartment on the firewall. A blower motor resistor or a blower motor control module is the part that controls the speed of the blower motor.

Where is the blower motor resistor located on a 2000 Dodge Durango?

RE: 2000 Durango Blower Motor Resistor The blower motor resistor is under the front cowl up in an access hole. Basically, you have to remove the windshield wipers and cowl. The blower motor resistor is hard to get to since it is way up in the access hole.

Does the blower motor resistor control heat?

The blower motor resistor is an electrical component that is a part of the vehicle’s heating and air conditioning system. It is responsible for controlling the blower motor’s fan speed. A failed blower motor resistor can cause issues with the operation of the entire heating and air conditioning system.

Why does my blower motor resistor keep blowing?

Trent, one of the biggest reasons for blower motor resistors to have shorten life is actually because of faulty blower motor drawing too many amps, some times melting wires/plugs, heating up resistors shortening their life.

How do I replace the blower motor resistor?

DIY Jobs Related to the Blower Motor Resistor While you’re under the dash working around the HVAC housing, here are some related items that you should perform for preventative maintenance or to prevent the need for future issues with your HVAC system.

How do you replace a fan motor resistor?


  1. Remove the negative battery terminal.
  2. Locate the blower motor resistor on the passenger side under the dash board.
  3. Disconnect the electrical connector to the blower motor resistor.

Where is the blower motor resistor located on a 2006 Dodge Dakota?

The blower motor resistor is mounted to the HVAC air inlet housing, directly behind the glove box.

Can I bypass a blower motor resistor?

In the highest speed state, the blower resistor is bypassed completely and the fan is connected directly to the car’s battery, which allows maximum current through the motor. Power to the blower motor is fed through the blower motor resistor, so if it fails or has any issues power can be cut off to the motor.
